And the third one she send along with picture and recipe ,that is Aloo chhole. That too along with Naan… enough to make mouth water, isn’t it ? Here is the recipe for it in her own words …

Aloo Chole - North Indian

Boil the potatoes and peel them. Soak channa over night and cook it in pressure cooker for 7 to 10 minutes till it well done. Smash a little channa and keep it aside.
